A Merry Christmas to all our players and a big THANK YOU for supporting Rebellion and independent games development!
When it comes to games, 2016 was a landmark year for Rebellion in many ways. We're still pinching ourselves that we've had the honour of releasing not one but TWO games under the Battlezone name, a truly iconic gaming franchise and an IP very close to our hearts.
And while it feels like many moons ago now, of course 2016 was also the year we revealed Sniper Elite 4, and we wanted to take this chance to show our appreciation for everyone's continued support for the series, and the excitement that you’ve shown towards this next thrilling instalment – coming February 14th, 2017. We're very proud of what the team has achieved and the game is so very nearly finished - we can't wait for you to get your hands on it. Not too long to go now!
If you speak to Rebellion staff though, I think the real highlight for this year has been getting out and meeting so many of you - often for the first time. We took Battlezone (VR) and Sniper Elite 4 on tours across Europe and the US, from E3 to PAX, Gamescom, Paris Games Week, EGX, Insomnia, Warsaw and more, and your feedback was as invaluable as your patience in the queues was impressive!
We hope to reach out again to you in 2017, not only with Sniper Elite 4 and Battlezone, but some exciting new projects too!
Until then, have a great Christmas break and a happy New Year.
Chris, Jason and Rebellion
